The state’s unemployment rate fell one tenth of a percent in November. The current rate of 5.2 percent, seasonally adjusted, came with strong growth in the retail sector.
The jobs that come with selling stuff delivered over 3,000 new jobs in November and strictly speaking, more than just Christmas shopping drove the numbers. Seasonal adjustments are designed to filter out that sort of impact.
